Marry The Man You Could Live Without

Marry the man who believes in you and your dreams, even if you’ve taken a hiatus from them. He encourages you every time you attempt to make them a reality, and doesn’t show disappointment if you fail.

Marry the man who knows your weaknesses and doesn’t try to use them against you. Instead, he builds you up and helps you maintain your balance in all aspects of life.

Marry the man who complements you. He fills in all of your blanks. The outgoing to your shy. The glass half full to your glass half empty. The perfect balance for your eccentric chaos.

Marry the man that you could live without, but wouldn’t want to. Life is far more beautiful when shared with him.
